Thread: Katos in Stock

  1. #21
    These knives sound like a real find. Aren't many around too. Shhhh!! I don't like light, and I think the mass would suit me.

    Not that it matters if they perform so well, but which steel is it? I've only seen that it's 'carbon clad'. A review has mentioned it's not very reactive, though.

    Once you have used it for a week you don't even notice how much it weighs (until you pick up a laser gyuto and it feels like a kids toy )

    I think the steel is a "secret" but I heard someone say the thought it was similar to white#1?, and the cladding is not very reactive at all, It patinas quite slowly, and even when the patina is removed it will only cause slight discoloration on onions, and no carbon smell.

    I can tell you it is a top performing knife IME. I do not feel the weight at all, and I do not like heavy knives. The cutting performance is just super for me.
    I also have a 180 petty, it has completely overtaken all cutting task that used to do with a 210 suji/petty before.
    Gets nice patina no smell, no food discoloration. The steel is something special, I got the guyto may be 3-4 weeks ago and sharpened it onece and still going strong. I do not strop my knives, and this one beat my Shigefusa easily as far as edge retention goes.

    Yeah, I've read some of what you guys have written elsewhere. This one sounds like a freak of nature.

    Ah, don't worry about it! You're just telling people what you think. Breath of fresh air, I say.

    I will get one Yanagi next month but they are in the big price range.
    All his single beveled is quite expensive
